Confirmed: The Obama DHS hit job on conservatives is real
http://michellemalkin.com ^ | April 14, 2009 12:01 AM | Michelle Malkin

Posted on 04/13/2009 10:02:53 PM PDT by ebiskit

Yesterday, Roger Hedgecock and the Liberty Papers posted an unclassified DHS Office of Intelligence and Analysis report titled:

Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment.

The “report” was one of the most embarrassingly shoddy pieces of propaganda I’d ever read out of DHS. I couldn’t believe it was real.

I spent the day chasing down DHS spokespeople, who have been tied up preparing for a very important homeland security event later today: The First Lady is coming to visit their Washington office. Priorities, you know.

Well, the press office got back to me and verified that the document is indeed for real.

They were very defensive — preemptively so — in asserting that it was not a politicized document and that DHS had done reports on “leftwing extremism” in the past. I have covered DHS for many years and am quite familiar with past assessments they and the FBI have done on animal rights terrorists and environmental terrorists. But those past reports have always been very specific in identifying the exact groups, causes, and targets of domestic terrorism, i.e., the ALF, ELF, and Stop Huntingdon wackos who have engaged in physical harassment, arson, vandalism, and worse against pharmaceutical companies, farms, labs, and university researchers.

By contrast, the piece of crap report issued on April 7 is a sweeping indictment of conservatives. And the intent is clear. As the two spokespeople I talked with on the phone today made clear: They both pinpointed the recent “economic downturn” and the “general state of the economy” for stoking “rightwing extremism.” One of the spokespeople said he was told that the report has been in the works for a year. My b.s. detector went off the chart, and yours will, too, if you read through the entire report — which asserts with no evidence that an unquantified “resurgence in rightwing extremist recruitment and radicalizations activity” is due to home foreclosures, job losses, and…the historical presidential election.

In Obama land, there are no coincidences. It is no coincidence that this report echoes Tea Party-bashing left-wing blogs (check this one out comparing the Tea Party movement to the Weather Underground!) and demonizes the very Americans who will be protesting in the thousands on Wednesday for the nationwide Tax Day Tea Party.

From the report, p.2:

Rightwing extremism in the United States can be broadly divided into those groups, movements, and adherents that are primarily hate-oriented (based on hatred of particular religious, racial or ethnic groups), and those that are mainly antigovernment, rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority, or rejecting government authority entirely. It may include groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration.

From the report. p. 3:

(U//LES) Rightwing extremists are harnessing this historical election as a recruitment tool. Many rightwing extremists are antagonistic toward the new presidential administration and its perceived stance on a range of issues, including immigration and citizenship, the expansion of social programs to minorities, and restrictions on firearms ownership and use. Rightwing extremists are increasingly galvanized by these concerns and leverage them as drivers for recruitment. From the 2008 election timeframe to the present, rightwing extremists have capitalized on related racial and political prejudices in expanded propaganda campaigns, thereby reaching out to a wider audience of potential sympathizers.

(U) Exploiting Economic Downturn

(U//FOUO) Rightwing extremist chatter on the Internet continues to focus on the economy, the perceived loss of U.S. jobs in the manufacturing and construction sectors, and home foreclosures. Anti-Semitic extremists attribute these losses to a deliberate conspiracy conducted by a cabal of Jewish “financial elites.” These “accusatory” tactics are employed to draw new recruits into rightwing extremist groups and further radicalize those already subscribing to extremist beliefs. DHS/I&A assesses this trend is likely to accelerate if the economy is perceived to worsen.

From the report, p. 5:

(U//FOUO) Over the past five years, various rightwing extremists, including militias and white supremacists, have adopted the immigration issue as a call to action, rallying point,
and recruiting tool. Debates over appropriate immigration levels and enforcement policy generally fall within the realm of protected political speech under the First Amendment, but in some cases, anti-immigration or strident pro-enforcement fervor has been directed against specific groups and has the potential to turn violent.

And echoing the anti-military bigotry last seen in that disgusting Penn State University training video, there’s this on p. 7:

(U) Disgruntled Military Veterans

(U//FOUO) DHS/I&A assesses that rightwing extremists will attempt to recruit and radicalize returning veterans in order to exploit their skills and knowledge derived from military training and combat. These skills and knowledge have the potential to boost the capabilities of extremists—including lone wolves or small terrorist cells—to carry out violence. The willingness of a small percentage of military personnel to join extremist groups during the 1990s because they were disgruntled, disillusioned, or suffering from the psychological effects of war is being replicated today.

There’s no hackneyed left-wing stereotype of conservatives left behind in this DHS intelligence and analysis assessment. I asked both DHS spokespeople to tell me who, specifically, the report was accusing of “rightwing extremist chatter” and which “antigovernment” groups are being monitored as “extremists.” They say they’ll get back to me.

In the meantime, be aware of this from the report, p. 8:

(U//FOUO) DHS/I&A will be working with its state and local partners over the next several months to ascertain with greater regional specificity the rise in rightwing extremist activity in the United States, with a particular emphasis on the political, economic, and social factors that drive rightwing extremist radicalization.

Better make a few last-minute signs for the Tea Party. Obama’s DHS is watching:

Honk if you’re a radicalized rightwing extremist!

Guilty of rightwing extremist chatter

Anti-government, pro-freedom: Sue me

Did the DHS report say anything about people being bitter, clinging to their guns and religion?

We all know where this is coming from. What concerns me is where it is going. Remember, this is the Department of Homeland Security, established after 9/11 to fight terrorism. And now they’re trying to turn it on the bitter clinging Americans.

Bureaucrats.

Gotta make the boss happy if you are going to get promoted.

Why is anyone surprised? With a shrinking budget any self-serving bureaucrat is going to do anything to protect his own rice bowl.

The raid on Waco was a rice bowl moment that went bad.

So, when/where is the next Waco?

Few heeded those warnings. Constitutionally enumerated powers should have so remained. There were better ways to fight terrorism, especially charging the people with rooting them out and then deporting them.

Well, as a religious, illegal immigrant loathing, gun rights supporting, abortion deriding right wing nut job, about all I can do is laugh at this silliness out of DHS.

At least they have a sense of humor up there. I sure hope they’ll let me know early enough so I can get my Star of David firmly sewn on my clothing before the Crystal Nacht American version.

And when should we expect the empty rail cars? I don’t want to be caught without a grey suit for the camps.

This is not as scary for me, as it is just plain nutty.

If something like this should come to pass, the left would fall in on itself and this nation would melt down ever quicker. They’d be killing themselves off in weeks.

Why do they think holds the place together now, the liberals? LOL Go ahead leftists, take us down. You’ll be taken over within a year by a foreign power.

An interesting snippet from the article.

The Constitution says that the States (local government) have the authority to decide all issues that are not given to the federal government.

This "antigovernment" phraseology is inflammatory in that it gives the impression that following the Constitution is "antigovernment" when in fact it is just the opposite.

It is FOR government as the Constitution defines it.

Constitutionally, there is no "federal authority" that legally usurps State's sovereignty in any area where powers are not given to the Federal Government.

It is the federal government that is rejecting the Constitutional rights of the States, ie local government.

Nice spin by those that wish to circumvent the Constitution

The raid on Waco was a rice bowl moment that went bad.

So, when/where is the next Waco?

How about "a Waco every week?"

The really insidious aspect of this very dangerous development comes from several angles. It is very inflammatory, likely to provoke precisely the behavior it claims to spotlight. The devil himself could not have designed a more potent social explosive.

It also shows how DHS has fallen completely to the Social Workers, and there was good reason to fear this must one day happen back at the creation of this Frankenstein - knowing full well it would inevitable fall into the hands of the Socialist mob.

It demonstrates the Reason-For-Being of DHS has become Self-Continuity, and the Terrorists, in the eyes of this administration are the People, as defined in the Constitution. They clearly fear the People more than Islam.

How does one fight this attempt to redefine the Center in a battle of perceptions? Tea Parties?

If this is just the first, what can we expect before an election policed by these mobsters and ACORN?

I can't help but wonder if we can wait for an election, as methodology such as this will only get stronger and more dangerous, dividing out individuals in a reign of terror and cowing the rest.

Do you imagine there will not be a disproportionate number of IRS audits awaiting those attending Tea Parties on Wednesday? They may even hope that word of such a thing is exposed, as it ignites the kind of direct action they want, and there just isn't any "media" anymore.

This is bad, bad business, friends. It is a clear and present danger to the safety of the Republic.

What the government and media are doing is no different than the bully in the schoolyard trying to taunt you into a fight. Like the bully in the schoolyard they will continue to call you names and push you around until you lose your temper. Hopefully the incidents that the government and media are trying to create with their taunting will not materialize. What worrys me though is that the bully may give his self a bloody nose then run and tell the teacher you did it.
